Examining the ancient poetry and myths found in African, Latin American, and Caribbean culture, and particularly the Yoruba trickster figure of Esu-Elegbara and t h e S i g n i f y ing Monkey whose myths help articulate the black tradition's theory of its literature, Gates uncovers a unique system of interpretation and a powerful vernacular tradition that black slaves brought with them to the New World. Gat es u s es t hi s cr it ic al framework to examine several major works of African-American literature, including Zora Neale Hurston's 'Their Eyes Were Watching God', Ralph Ellison's 'Invisible Man', and Ishmael Reed's 'Mumbo Jumbo'."
